As of late, my life has been crazy. Like, seriously, crazy. I am stressed beyond belief and trying to find a way to find a balance, especially for my girls. Yesterday morning, my almost-4-year old girl wanted to go out and pick a flower for her teacher. Of course, I was late (as usual) but I stopped and thought to myself “If I don’t take this moment in now, when will I?” I strive very hard (or at least that is my intention) to make sure that my girls are kind and considerate, and that is exactly the behavior that Lou was demonstrating. Of course, if I start to think about the amount of times that our schedule or life gets in the way of that my head might explode. I would never want my girls to think that there is anything more important than them… but unfortunately, sometimes my behavior shows otherwise. So, here’s to a new, calmer me and training myself how to stop and smell the flowers.
